The MCA department of IICMR organized a workshop on Computer Organization for MCA I students to initiate an innovative way of imparting knowledge which could be useful to all other similar institutes as well. The workshop was conducted by Ms. Kiran Shinde and Mr. Haridas Mundhe.
The workshop was comprised of two major activities. In one activity students were asked to disassemble the working computer system and assemble back. In other activity they were informed about the motherboard and its components.
She emphasized the importance of effective communication skills and how we can present ourselves effectively while going for an interview.
Mr. Kuldeep Deshpande , in his interactive session, spoke about the Big Data Analytics, challenges for Big Data , real -life use cases implemented ,etc.
He highlighted the role of Data Scientist and pointed out the skill set required to be one.
Mr. Atul Benegiri , in his address on ‘Smart solutions to Smart city’ explained the Smart City project , various requirement of smart city, its functions and necessities. He also added the types of SMART solutions required and employability. He focused on few concepts of smart city like Planning for future generation , Infrastructural facilities, power and electricity , Smart Mobility, use of GPS for accessibility, Pollution free IOT.
He also talked about world’s top 100 Smart cities and India’s contribution to it. He advised the st udent to participate in “ Mygov.org” Project of India through blogs, discussion or by giving suggestions.
There is an ample opportunity in the field of Data science and analytics, cloud computing, research in Artificial Intelligence and IT infrastructure management in near future.
A Four Days National Level Workshop under QIP (Quality Improvement Program) was conducted in association with IIT Roorkee & Savitribai Phule Pune University. 45 delegates (Academicians/Research Scholars/Students) and Industry Experts from all over India participated in the QIP.
The objectives of the programme were:
1. To provide exposure to latest Technology IoT with RaspberryPi to Academicians/Corporate.
2. To educate the participants the core and essentials concepts of Raspberry Pi
3. To educate the participants how business application data can be stored locally and on cloud
4. To create real time business applications using Python programming, Raspberry Pi and various sensors
The four days’ workshop witnessed sessions on Models, Peripherals and Applications of Raspberry Pi, demonstration on how to install and set up of OS in Raspberry Pi, sessions for Raspberry Pi with various sensors, demonstration for Open Source Software Library and how to update Pi to latest software, demonstration on how to store data on cloud using Adafruit IO cloud service, how to generate key and feeds, live business applications based on IoT. Various projects using the concepts of IoT were developed by the participants under the guidance of the trainers.
Few of the Projects/ Models which were completed in these 4 days were Speedometer for any moving object Ultrasonic sensor with buzzer, Surveillance system for security & Safety, Car parking & monitoring system, Battle Cry, Car driving safety system to name a few.
The MCA department of IICMR organized a workshop on Computer Organization for MCA II students to initiate an innovative way of imparting knowledge which could be useful to all other similar institutes as well. The workshop was conducted by Ms.Kiran Shinde. At the beginning of the workshop a video on How to assemble a Computer was shown. Ms.Kiran guided the students for understanding the different ports, slots on the motherboard. She also showed a video on working of keyboard during the workshop.
MCA faculty members also visited the workshop. Theme of this technical workshop was explained by Ms. Kiran Shinde to the students.
Mr. Yogesh started his session by briefing about the first open Source Hardware Raspberry Pi that supports 10+ Operating Systems and about various versions of Raspberry Pi available. He explained about the architecture of the Linux Operating System and the classification of ARM processors. A comparison between Intel processors and ARM Processors was also done. He described the evolution of computers from fixed- computing to Internet of Everything. He demonstrated how Raspberry Pi can be used to control the Bubble maker machine by tweeting string. Sir shared ideas like smart chairs, smart Bicycle, smart Homes with students for future projects.Mr. Yogesh started his session by briefing about the first open Source Hardware Raspberry Pi that supports 10+ Operating Systems and about various versions of Raspberry Pi available.

Ms. Farjana gave the introduction of software testing and its importance in software industry. She explained the need of automated tools and explained that QTP is the automated testing tool which is widely use in the industry now. She took hands-on session on Quick Test Professional (QTP) and taught its practical applications. The students of MCA 2nd year attended the session along with Faculty members.
Hands on session was conducted by Ganesh Rampure for students of MCA 2nd year and MCA 3rd year. Python a language widely used for IoT, and not present in the old syllabus of MCA, students were very happy to learn the language.
Mr. Anand took a session on first half of day 1 to explain the building blocks of IoT and explained how the objecrts and appliances work by connecting to each other. He also explained how the future be with IoT with the help of small video clip. After the theoretical training on Python and Lynux he took hands on training on the IoT kit with sensors bought by him.
The main objective of this innovative workshop is to explain the internal structure, components of the computer by dismantling the old computers, Printer and Monitor, to get a feel of the hardware which they learn in their theory. The students of MCA 1st year attended the workshop.
The workshop was a 6 days program for 3 hrs each day. The first 3 days Mr. More covered the repairing of laptops and the next 3 days was for mobiles. The training was conducted for MCA 1st year students by Mr. Arun More who is M.Sc.(Physics –Electronics).B. Ed. with teaching Experience of 18 years, former HOD, Dept of Electronics at MIT College Pune presently working as Director Success Institute of technology Nigdi also is a Consultant to Kulswamini Engineers Pune. The Students found the learning very enriching. The learning process had good hands on guidance and the participants felt more time was required to get a better experience of the concepts taught.
In the workshop the trainer taught the participants about the building applications using android SDK starting from simple to complex applications. Each student developed a mobile app. The applications included App for calculating the calories gained, calories burned, daily expenses calculator, daily electricity usage meter, monthly budget calculator and so on.
